"The Best Part", 3 for open_on_sunday challenge #127 - Make Up
Author: darkhavens
Title: The Best Part
Pairing: Spike/Xander of Buffy
Rating: R for violence
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Warnings/Squicks: It's baby!vamp!Xander, so the usual - blood, gore, bodies... *g*
Notes: The further (and previous) adventures of baby!vamp!Xander.



The Virgin

Thick black kohl, hints of bronze powder to shape his face and a violent slash of carmine across his lips. Xander sat obediently still as Spike embellished him, unable to look away from the tight-laced corset and string of pearls that nudged Spike's Adam's apple as he spoke.

"I'm not having people look at you, wondering why you're there, pet. 'S your first time so you gotta do it right, and that means make-up. Eyeliner alone won't cut it with this crowd; if you don't paint up proper you get toasted."

"We're gonna eat 'em anyway..."

"Not before the show!"



The Tale

"…And then he had me put on this knee-length white linen nightshift and put ribbons in my hair and pretend to be asleep so he could sneak in and ravage poor, innocent little me."

Xander fell backwards off the bed, still laughing, clutching a stomach that felt like it was rupturing from the constant stress. Tears trickled down his face into his hairline as he struggled for breath between the violent bouts of mad, hysterical giggles.

"You're… Hahah! Oh, you have to be - haha! - making this up. No way would Angelus…"

"Dru took pictures."

The stunned, anticipatory silence was deafening.



The Doll

"Dru, luv, that's not a new addition to the family, is it? It'll probably start stinking pretty soon now you've ripped it open."

Drusilla smeared the pale cheeks with blood-tinged rouge, then looked at him with shining eyes. Glass bell chimes of laughter filled the room.

"So silly, Spike, you even made Miss Edith give a giggle. You know I like my dollies clean and tidy."

Spike's glance skimmed their battered, tattered, charred and lost-limbed porcelain audience.

"Right."

"They're coming soon to carry her off to hell. She won't be pretty there."

Dru began to brush the short red hair.



AN: The Virgin, of course, refers to Xander's first 'live' viewing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Poor broken red-headed doll... :D

I haven't decided yet or not how I should feel about the fact that I knew exactly what Xander was a virgin of by the second line. LOL

Great works, all of them. The second one presented a wonderful visual. Loved the last line.

The last one was almost bittersweet. It's almost sarcastic, but sad in a way. Can't decide how to feel about it. Either way, it was lovely. If that makes any sense. *gr*

I just about everyone got the reference, which is what makes it fun. I remember losing my RHPS virginity... Fun! :D

Thanks!

Hee! The idea of the bois eating people at Rocky at the end of the show is just too damn good! Love every bit of it! You're just so damn good!
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:24 am (UTC)
Thanks! *smooch*

They'd wait until the end so that everyone got to see the show, of course, and so that the show would actually take place. You never know when theatre people will get squeamish and refuse to put on a show in the middle of a feeding frenzy. *g*

Oh my...

Spike and Xander all dressed up to go see Rocky. I need to see that. Yes I do.

Red-head in Hell. Sounds porny. Heh.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:25 am (UTC)
LOL! Thanks!

But porny? Not so much. Gory, maybe. ;)

"Not before the show!"
LOL...heee--too right Spike! Cause that would be wrong..heee...

"Dru took pictures."
O_o I join in the stunned anticipatory silence...woooo...

And I know exactly how I feel about the red-headed 'doll'----
YES!
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:27 am (UTC)
LOL...heee--too right Spike! Cause that would be wrong..heee...

It would! You need a full and happy audience to get the full effect of the RHPS. :D

Poor broken dolly. Nobody will want to play with her any more. ;)

As always, I just love baby!vamp!xander. :-) All of these are great, but my favorite is definitely the Rocky one. Excellent!
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:32 am (UTC)
Thanks!

I just have this idea that Spike knows all the words and Xander spends the whole night watching Spike more often than he watches the show. *g*

darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:33 am (UTC)
Thankee! *smooch*

You wait until you see what other boys literati got me to write. o.O

Yikes, but that last one was creepy.
darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:33 am (UTC)
Hee! Thanks! Dru is so wonderfully creepy with her collection of tatty dolls. :D
samsara_svsamsara_sv on August 31st, 2005 07:32 am (UTC)
heheh I think most people would have got the Rocky Horror Picture show reference (?) but what a great use of the prompt!

and YAY finally the little tree is no more! (hmm ok normally I like Willow but in this 'verse it's good she's gone!)

darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:35 am (UTC)
Thanks!

And Willow really was good at heart, which of course meant she had to go. there's no room in this 'verse for do-gooders! *g*
Dittostretfordditto on August 31st, 2005 10:41 am (UTC)

Adored those and I knew it was Rocky Horror! :)
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:36 am (UTC)
Thanks! I love RHPS. I'd love to go see it again. :D

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Fantabulous!

Thankee! :D

Lol! I'm so old, I caught the Rocky Horror picture show when it was playing the first time through. For years, I gabbled about this weird and wonderful little show I'd seen. Wasn't I surprised when it showed up as a cult favorite.

Great drabble.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:39 am (UTC)
Oh wow! You're practically a part of history! *ducks*
Richard o'Brien was definitely an insane genius. :D

True, but my heart is timeless.

Richard O'Brien will always be Riff Raff to me.
darkhavensdarkhavens on September 5th, 2005 02:54 am (UTC)
Richard O'Brien will always be Riff Raff to me.

Me too! Every time I see him I expect him to have a hunchback and that godawful hair. *g*

I have RHPS on DVD, CD, video and audio cassette so I can play it in some form wherever I am. LOL!
